It appears today is the day for the PC trailers of both of the largest first-person shooters of 2021: Battlefield 2042, and now Call of Duty: Vanguard. Check out the PC-focused trailer to Call of Duty: Vanguard below:

The PC trailer to Call of Duty: Vanguard was accompanied by the full PC system requirements, where we now know you won't need terabytes of storage to install Vanguard -- rather, 36GB of storage space is required for the Multiplayer/Zombie modes only, while 61GB is required for the Recommended/Competitive/Ultra 4K.

You're going to need an Intel Core i3-4340 or AMD FX-6300 processor or better, but the developer recommends an Intel Core i5-2500K or AMD Ryzen 5 1600X while competitive mode has the Core i7-8700K or AMD Ryzen 7 1800X processors, but at the top for Ultra 4K you're going to need an Intel Core i9-9900K or AMD Ryzen 9 3900X processor.

GPU-wise the recommendations aren't too bad, with a low-end NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 or AMD Radeon RX 470 graphics card as the baseline required GPU -- the GeForce GTX 1060 or Radeon RX 580 is recommended. For competitive Call of Duty: Vanguard players, the developer recommends the GeForce RTX 3070 or GeForce RTX 3060 Ti for NVIDIA, while the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT is recommended.

If you want to play Call of Duty: Vanguard on the PC on Ultra 4K settings, then the developer pushes up GPU requirements further to the GeForce RTX 3080 or Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics cards.
